Is your marriage stuck in “replay mode”?
Do you and your partner keep repeating the same argument, despite your best intentions?
Do repetitive arguments or misunderstandings leave you questioning the very foundation your marriage is built upon?
Have you ever been plagued with doubts about whether you and your partner are truly meant for each other?
WHAT IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT ALONE?
I’m so glad you’re here. Imagine how different it would feel to go from living in doubt to feeling loved and being SO confident that being with your partner is the best decision you’ve ever made. What would change for you?
Over the past 14 + years I’ve had the honor of successfully helping countless parents gain clarity into the powerful forces driving their biggest long-standing arguments.
Soon after I became a mother in 2011, I felt so depleted and spent a huge amount of energy in ‘reactivity’ mode. I was guilt-ridden and ashamed that I wasn’t showing up in my marriage in the ways I knew I was capable of. At the same time, I was chronically sleep deprived, constantly getting sick and desperate for someone to take care of me.
Most importantly I was painfully aware that my marriage was exactly where our children were already starting to learn about what they can expect to experience in close relationships.
So over the past 6 years I developed my own step-by-step framework to help me move through conflict differently - based on my own journey, the professional support I sought out and the most holistic psychological traditions I’m trained in.
And I realized this could be profoundly helpful to other couples with children too.
Since then, although my mate & I still argue sometimes - our arguments don’t escalate as quickly. We recover from them faster and feel even closer afterwards.
It feels amazing to trust that we can handle anything that comes our way. Now instead of feeling stuck during an argument, I can actually be curious about the next thing I need to learn or master.
I fiercely believe you too, can move beyond exhausting power-struggles and get your marriage out of ‘replay mode’.
You can spend less energy rehashing the same arguments & more time feeling truly heard, appreciated and understood in your marriage.
I want to acknowledge you for seeking out opportunities to deepen the love in your relationship, especially if you feel like you’ve been co-parenting roommates for years and you’re afraid your marriage may have lost its luster forever.
the thing is...
When it comes to taking your relationship to the next level, information just isn’t enough. The ongoing support in this program will help you discover and implement the steps you need to take in order to improve your unique relationship.
When it comes to your relationship, have you ever found yourself saying...
"We can't communicate with each other when we are upset, without one of us getting defensive, shutting down, or accusatory.”
"I fear we’re growing apart & we don’t really feel like a couple - just two people raising kids together and I feel like I always have to be the one to patch things up.”
"I want to feel like a couple again. Being kind to me isn’t enough. I could be her sister or her uncle or roommate, and it would feel the same.”
I wholeheartedly believe you can nurture and enjoy a love that is even deeper, more tender and satisfying than it was in the beginning.
You get stuck in exhausting power-struggles, despite your best intentions
You’re harboring resentments towards each other and you’re feeling discouraged, unappreciated or lonely
I know what you're thinking.
Are we just too different to “get” each other?
Will we ever get beyond our differences and disagreements?
Are we destined to feel lonely and misunderstood in this marriage?
And most importantly:
Can we love each other as deeply now as we did in the beginning?

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING
“We got so much more than we expected. Ma’ayan helped us see each other tenderly and vulnerably so that instead of automatically shutting down, attacking or getting defensive, we can now understand each other’s true intentions and be more compassionate.”
What would a loving, connected partnership be worth to you? The kind of marriage where you can give each other the benefit of the doubt, hear each other without shutting-down or getting defensive, and powerfully take a stand for each other’s growth like never before?
What’s the cost of continuing to repeat the same patterns that got you to where you are now?
You have a choice.
In long-term relationships our partners will disappoint, hurt and misunderstand us. There will be a gap between the longed-for ideal lover we imagined and our real, human, imperfect partner. It is crucial that we learn to make room for these disappointments - in order to restore connection and continue to evolve our possibilities in love.
Faced with disappointment we have two choices :
Spiral down the path of control, blame and resentful resignation – we are wired to protest, angrily demand connection, retaliate and/or withdraw when we feel abandoned, helpless, ashamed, or hopeless.
Turn back toward our partner for repair so that connection can be restored – the difficult task of restoring connection in the face of relationship-pain brings with it renewed opportunities to know without a doubt that we are good-enough, we are lovable and loving, and that we can truly count on our relationship to be there for us.
LOVE NOTES FROM PAST CLIENTS
“We can’t possibly express how incredibly life changing our work with Ma’ayan was. It was truly the greatest investment we’ve ever made as a couple, and continues to be the greatest gift we’ve given to ourselves and each other.
Ma’ayan gave us the space to discover the answers we were hoping to find when we made the commitment to complete Ma’ayan’s coaching program. With Ma’ayan’s thoughtful insight & gentle encouragement, we dug deep into our relationship and discovered patterns that we knew we needed help to break.
We came out the other side with an incredibly deep empathy for each other and real, practical tools to change our old patterns rooted in fear and misunderstanding. Ultimately, we learned to more often communicate from a place of genuine love and understanding.
Ma’ayan always knew what we internally already knew but had to discover together—and she helped us get to that point of discovery on our own time, guiding us to understanding the power of surrendering, of letting go of the need to control everything, sharing what we need to be proactive partners, parents and friends.
We always knew we would benefit from marriage counseling or coaching, but we could not have been luckier that the stars aligned to find Ma’ayan’s program. My wife and I continue to use the tools we developed with Ma’ayan in our relationship with each other, our children and throughout our lives.
Again, there are no words that suffice. If you’re even partially considering working with Ma’ayan, please know that if you’re willing to be honest with yourself and with your partner, this will literally change your marriage in ways you can’t imagine."

How does this 6-month Coaching Program work?
There is a 6-month minimum commitment to ensure your growth is enduring and will stay with you for the rest of your relationship. During the program, Ma’ayan will meet with you individually or together with your partner for an hour each week. Sessions can be held in-person in Dr. Greenbaum’s practice, or virtually from the comfort of your home (via video-conferencing).
Does my partner have to join me, or can I do this on my own?
You can participate on your own, or together with your partner. Since relationships are like living, breathing organisms any shifts you make will inevitably change the dynamic in your relationship-system. For example, you may begin to find that your partner is less defensive and more cooperative once you’re able to work on the critical tone you bring to your interactions
What results can I expect?
5. Use conflict as a catalyst to evolve your intimacy beyond what you thought was previously possible in your relationship (instead of allowing conflict to pull you further apart).
